Queen Elizabeth Stylin' & Profilin' w/ Anna Wintour ... Front Row at LFW!

2/20/2018 9:20 AM PST

Queen Elizabeth made a rare appearance on the sidelines of a catwalk as she graced London Fashion Week alongside Anna Wintour ... but she didn't seem that impressed.

The Queen was spotted sitting in the front row Tuesday at Richard Quinn's fashion show, and while a bunch of people -- including Anna -- clapped for the models as they strutted ... Elizabeth seemed to hold back a bit on the applause.

Based on this video, it's unclear if she had just wrapped up a polite Royal mini clap ... but she definitely didn't hold it as long as everyone else. Richard and co. shouldn't feel too bad, though ... apparently she hardly claps for anything.

What's crazier ... this appears to be the first time the Queen of England has attended a show for London Fashion Week. Even at 91 years old ... Elizabeth can still surprise us.

Prince William Gets Your Motor Running!!! (Maybe Just a Little?)

2/20/2018 7:22 AM PST

Prince William ain't exactly the "Easy Rider" type, but he's trying his damnedest to look the part.

The Duke of Cambridge suited up Tuesday, hopped on a Triumph motorbike, popped the clutch and zoomed off -- but not too far. This was mostly a photo op, after all.

Wills visited Triumph Motorcycles and MIRA Technology Park in England -- and took a tour to celebrate the British company's world-class facilities.

Really though ... it was an awesome excuse for the father of 2 to live in the fast lane again. William used to own a Ducati back in his youth, and seemed to recapture some of that while test riding a Triumph Tiger 1200 around the factory's private track.

He got an up-close look at the assembly line and the slick machines they're producing -- but, let's be honest, he's got baby number 3 on the way. Probably best if William sticks to this kind of racing.

Kate Middleton Time Was Up for BAFTA Dress Change ... She's Preggo, After All

2/19/2018 10:18 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kate Middleton was fighting the clock when she put on her green gown for the BAFTA Awards -- instead of black -- and her pregnancy made a switch near impossible.

Royals expert Katie Nicholl -- who wrote the book, "Kate: The Future Queen" -- tells us the Duchess of Cambridge was in a "no-win situation" Sunday with her wardrobe choice. She was criticized for going against the suggested Time's Up all-black dress code -- but Nicholl says Kate's dress was likely pre-ordered months ago and custom-made with her pregnancy in mind.

Point is ... the dress would've been chosen way before the Time's Up's buzz began in late 2017, and would preclude a last-minute wardrobe change.

There's also this -- Nicholl says members of the Royal family are encouraged to avoid political statements. That could be at play, but taking a stand against sexual harassment -- as tons of celebs have during award season -- hardly seems like a controversial stance. 

So, we're going maternity dress issues for the win.

Kate Middleton at BAFTA Awards A Little Green on Time's Up? Breaks All-Black Dress Code

2/18/2018 12:33 PM PST

Kate Middleton either wasn't aware or simply didn't care about the suggested all-black dress code for Time's Up at the BAFTA Awards -- 'cause she went another way.

Kate and Prince William attended the annual award show Sunday in England, hitting the red carpet in a dark green gown while her hubby rocked a classic black tux. 

It's a notable fashion choice, especially since most of the big stars of the night stuck to the blackout we saw during the Golden Globes. Actresses that wore black include Angelina Jolie, Margot Robbie, Jennifer Lawrence, Naomie Harris, Lupita Nyong'o, Salma Hayek, Octavia Spencer and others.

Whether she didn't get the memo, or just didn't want to weigh in on a controversial issue ... Kate definitely made a statement.

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle 'Royal Love Story' Stars Go to Work ... Nailed It?

2/14/2018 4:04 PM PST

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have touched down in Canada to start production on a new Lifetime movie about their love affair -- or at least the actors playing them have.

The actors playing the couple in "Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story" were spotted Wednesday in downtown Vancouver, where they're shooting the film -- and ya gotta compare 'em to the real deal.

Parisa Fitz-Henley seems to be getting a green light on social media for her resemblance to Meghan. Murray Fraser, on the other hand, might not be getting double takes for the right reason. Good looking guy and all, but he's no Prince of Wales.

The movie's about the story of how Harry and Meghan fell for each other ... way back in 2016. 'Memba that?

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Plaid & Little Ponies In Scotland

2/13/2018 8:00 AM PST

Megan Markle is fitting in across the pond right down to her plaid when it comes to accompanying Prince Harry on royal duty.

The couple's in Edinburgh, Scotland Tuesday and shook hands with locals after being greeted by the Royal Regiment of Scotland's mascot, Cruachan. Cruachan's a Shetland pony and comes with its own handler, Pony Major Mark Wilkinson. 

They didn't engage with the tiny horse long before making small talk with folks outside Edinburgh Castle who showered Meghan with gifts and waved flags with the couple's mug on them.

Then again, it's never fun when someone shows up wearing the same thing.

Prince William & Kate Middleton W.T.H-E-Double Bandy Sticks ... Are You Two Playing??

1/30/2018 7:44 AM PST

Prince William and Kate Middleton slapped around some balls on the ice this week -- but don't call what they're doing hockey ... 'cause it ain't quite that.

The Prince and the Duchess of Cambridge were seen getting their bandy on Tuesday in Sweden, where they were on a Royal visit from the UK. While there, they were seen hanging with Stockholm team Hammarby IF and trying out the sport first-hand.

It's basically a European version of American hockey -- except they use balls instead of pucks ... apparently with the same slapshot techniques, though.

Kate and Will looked like pros out there ... and looked even better handing out hot chocolate to everyone, too.

Meghan Markle Wanted to Be Willy Wonka Before a Royal Princess

1/27/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Meghan Markle's on her way to joining the Royal Family, but before that, she had her sights set on becoming queen ... of the lollipop biz.

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... Meghan and a friend filed trademark paperwork back in 2012 for the term "Lali" -- with the apparent intention of selling their own line of lollipops and drops.

It evidently never panned out, because a little more than 2 years later they abandoned their trademark application ... and haven't filed anything since.

Good news for Markle, though -- if she ever wants to revive the "Lali" pops ... Royal protocol won't get in her way.

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Wales of a Time!!!

1/18/2018 9:18 AM PST

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were late, but worth the wait for their first official visit to Wales.

The royal couple arrived at the iconic Cardiff Castle Thursday in the capital city of Wales, a pretty personal visit, of course -- he was born to the Prince and Princess of Wales. The overflowing crowd was all smiles when Harry and Meghan stepped out to greet their subjects.

Afterward, H&M headed inside the castle and joined a festival to celebrate Welsh culture.

It's the couple's third public appearance since announcing their engagement back in November. 

Queen Elizabeth Heavy Is My Crown!!! Roughs Up Family Jewels

1/15/2018 7:13 AM PST

Turns out Queen Elizabeth ain't so down with her crown, after all.

QE2 caused a bit of an uproar in the U.K. during her first sit-down interview with the BBC ... because she damn near bounced her crown. You gotta see her attempt to lift the crown, only to quickly drop it, saying ... "It weighs a ton."

The Queen makes it seem like she hasn't seen her crown in years and, in fact, couldn't tell the front from the back. Can ya blame HRH?

Family jewels can be confusing ... and heavy. 

Prince William Quick! Pass The Royal Scalpel!

1/10/2018 11:30 AM PST

No, you're not watching an episode of "Royal ER" starring Prince William ... dude actually scrubbed up and joined surgeons in the operating room of a cancer hospital in London.

The future King of England sat in on a robotic surgery at Royal Marsden Hospital in Chelsea. The hospital was one of the first in London to use the technology on cancerous tumors, and since Wills followed in his late mom footsteps as the president of the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, he got to see the bot firsthand Wednesday at work.

Warning, some of the pics of the surgery are graphic, but Wills handled it like a pro.

Meghan Markle Bro's Fiancee Arrested For Alleged NYE Assault

1/5/2018 5:46 PM PST

Meghan Markle's not the only one in her family planning a wedding -- but her half-brother's might be on hold after his fiancee got busted for assaulting him.

Darlene Blount was arrested in Oregon Sunday night -- just before midnight, actually -- after what cops describe as a booze-fueled altercation. Blount was booked for 4th degree assault about 4 hours into 2018. Happy new year!

Darlene is engaged to Thomas Markle, Meghan's half-brother. They have the same father, but don't appear to be close anymore. Thomas told the Daily Mail -- which first reported the arrest -- he hasn't seen Meghan since 2011 when she moved to take her role in "Suits."

We're guessing this probably hurts Thomas and Darlene's shot at a royal wedding invitation. Just a guess.  

Meghan Markle She Can Still Have a Side Hustle

1/3/2018 9:44 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Meghan Markle has nothing standing in her way if she ever wants to start a beauty line once she joins the royal family.

Reports surfaced Tuesday that Markle was partnering up with Victoria Beckham on a bio-botox line, but we're told they're completely untrue. 

Palace sources tell us Meghan's future royal status won't prevent her from diving into her own business once she's married to Prince Harry. There are no U.K. laws that prohibit a member of the royal family from having a side hustle. All she has to do is follow the same rules as the normies, and she's good to go.

And, we're told, Royal protocol does not prohibit business ventures by someone in Markle's position. The Countess of Wessex, who married Prince Edward, ran a PR company after becoming a royal fam member. 

Meghan had run her own lifestyle blog, The Tig, but shut it down after 3 years.
